1 ripe banana, sliced
75g milk chocolate, chopped
4 slices crusty white bread from a round loaf
3 medium eggs
1 tbsp double cream
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
25g unsalted butter ground cinnamon, to serve icing sugar or extra maple syrup, to serve (optional)
1 Put the banana in a bowl and mash using a fork. Add the chocolate and mix to combine.
2 Put 2 slices of bread on a work surface. Divide the chocolate and banana between them. Top each with a second slice of bread and press together to make a sandwich.
3 In a dish, whisk the eggs, cream, maple syrup and vanilla. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Lay one sandwich into the egg mixture to coat one side, then carefully flip it so that both sides are soaked in the egg. Lower the sandwich into the frying pan and cook for about 1 min each side until the bread is golden brown and the chocolate has started to melt. Repeat with the second sandwich. To serve, cut the sandwiches in half and sprinkle with a little cinnamon and either icing sugar or extra maple syrup if you’re feeling super-indulgent.
